The BMW M5 Touring Wagon is Coming Stateside for the First Time


the bmw m5 touring wagon is coming stateside for the first time

Wagons hold a strange place in the American car market. Auto journalists and car nerds gravitate to them like moths to a flame, but the general car-buying public seems like it couldn’t care less. That said, a small number of high-performance wagons enter the country every year, including the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon and Audi RS6 Avant. Americans are about to get one more hot longroof, this time from BMW, as the automaker recently announced that it would bring the incredibly impressive M5 Touring wagon stateside for the 2025 model year.

BMW said the car would get a hybrid V8 making somewhere north of 600 horsepower, though we don’t have specifics just yet. That drivetrain could also make the car quite heavy, though the power output will likely be enough to overcome the extra weight.

Europeans and others have long enjoyed the M5 Touring, as BMW has sold a few generations of the car outside of the United States. Wagons, while not our first choice in vehicles, have a small but loyal following among enthusiasts. BMW hasn’t released pricing for the M5 Touring in the U.S., but you can bet on a tight supply and inflated prices when it arrives. It will also probably only sell for a few years, as others like the Audi RS6 are expected to bow by 2025 or 2026 at the latest.
